Well, thanks for the input when I asked for opinions, but I’ll be holding off on doing anything about XM Radio. I remembered hearing that there was a proposed merger, but hadn’t heard anything for so long that I figured it had gotten nixed. As I herad from NPR and now from Consumerist, it hasn’t. I think I’ll wait for some third-party, interoperable recievers to come out, and see what this a la carte packaging looks like.
Besides, my Mac is on the way. That will keep me occupied for a while. Especially if I get off my butt and get internet at home. (I wish there were some neighborhood hotspots other than McDonald’s.)
